    I would say the answer depends on the reason(s) you are concerned about the extra weight...........??

    Unsprung weight does make a huge difference. I fitted disks to my old S4 that were 26lb lighter than standard and the difference in acceleration, braking and handling/ride were all massively affected.

    Since I'm just using this car for day to day purposes then I'm not to worried about it. If I was doing track days, auto rallies etc then perhaps I would be.
